The Valley of the Sun JCC is registering boys and girls for its youth Jeff Berkowitz Basketball and J Rec Soccer leagues.
“Participating in team sports at a young age sets children up for a lifetime of success. Our programs emphasize commitment, responsibility and resiliency,” said Devon De La Luz, director of sports and recreation. “It’s not about winning or losing, it’s about how children learn to manage their emotions and turn that energy into something positive.”
The Jeff Berkowitz Youth Basketball league provides eight weeks of skill development and game play for boys and girls grades Pre-K-6. In addition to developing teamwork, sportsmanship, coordination and skill, this league focuses on core values that develop champions on and off the court. Skill development and games are held on Sunday afternoons and the season starts on September 8.
J Rec Soccer a recreational league that helps boys and girls grades Pre-K-2 to improve their motor skills, coordination and self-confidence. Athletes learn the fundamental skills of soccer and immediately begin game play. Season starts October 13.
Participation in both leagues includes uniform and awards.
Parent coaches are needed for both leagues.
